The National Socialist Movement (also called NSM or NSM88) is a neo-Nazi party operating in the United States. The group was founded in 1974 by Robert Brannen, former member of the American Nazi Party before its decline. The group claims to be the largest and most active neo-Nazi organization in the United States. Its leader is Jeff Schoep. The party also sponsors a youth activism wing called the Viking Youth Corps.
The National Socialist Movement was responsible for leading the demonstration that sparked the 2005 Toledo Riots. In 2007 many members left to join the National Socialist Order of America, which was led by 2008 presidential candidate John Taylor Bowles.
In January 2009, the group sponsored a half-mile section of U.S. Highway 160 outside of Springfield, Missouri, as part of the Adopt-A-Highway Trash Cleanup program. The highway was later renamed the "Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Memorial Highway" by the state legislature.
On April 17, 2010, 70 members of the National Socialist Movement demonstrated against illegal immigration in front of the Los Angeles City Hall, drawing a counter protest of hundreds of anti-Nazi demonstrators. 
In May 2011, the NSM was described by The New York Times as being "the largest supremacist group, with about 400 members in 32 states". On May 1, 2011, Jeff Hall, a leader of the California branch of the NSM, was killed by his ten-year-old son.
The NSM held a rally on September 3, 2011 in West Allis, Wisconsin. The rally was to protest the attacks at the Wisconsin State Fair on August 5, 2011 when a flash mob of young African-Americans targeted and beat Caucasians.  Dan Devine, the mayor of West Allis, stated on September 2, 2011, "I believe I speak for the citizens when I say they are not welcome here."
Each state has members in smaller groups within areas known as "regions". As a whole, the NSM has National meetings as well as smaller Regional meetings.
